We conducted a prospective cohort study investigating the rate and predictors of dissatisfaction among patients after primary total hip arthroplasty (THA). Eight hundred fifty patients were assessed preoperatively and 1 year postoperatively using Patient Reported Outcome Measures. There was a 7% rate of dissatisfaction after THA. After univariate analysis,(More)
There is little evidence describing the influence of body mass index on the outcome of total hip arthroplasty (THA). Eight hundred patients undergoing primary cemented THA were followed for a minimum of 18 months. The Harris Hip Score (HHS) and Short Form 36 were recorded preoperatively and at 6 and 18 months postoperatively. In addition, other significant(More)
Although the use of constrained cemented arthroplasty to treat distal femoral fractures in elderly patients has some practical advantages over the use of techniques of fixation, concerns as to a high rate of loosening after implantation of these prostheses has raised doubts about their use. We evaluated the results of hinged total knee replacement in the(More)
BACKGROUND There is increasing interest in the use of total hip replacement (THR) for reconstruction in patients who have displaced intracapsular hip fractures. Patient selection is important for good outcomes, but criteria have only recently been clearly defined in the form of national guidelines. This study aimed to investigate patient reported outcomes(More)
Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is an established and successful procedure. However, the design of prostheses continues to be modified in an attempt to optimise the functional outcome of the patient. The aim of this study was to determine if patient outcome after TKA was influenced by the design of the prosthesis used. A total of 212 patients (mean age 69; 43(More)
Arterial complications following Total Knee Replacement are uncommon. We present a case of false aneurysm of the superior lateral geniculate artery presenting in the immediate postoperative period with continued bleeding from the surgical wound. This is the first case of false aneurysm of this vessel described following Total Knee Replacement. A method of(More)
AIMS Risk of revision following total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is higher in patients under 55 years, but little data are reported regarding non-revision outcomes. This study aims to identify predictors of dissatisfaction in these patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS We prospectively assessed 177 TKAs (157 consecutive patients, 99 women, mean age 50 years; 17 to(More)
Staged bilateral hip arthroplasties were carried out in two patients with osteoarthritis of the hip secondary to the development of hip dysplasia in Hereditary Multiple Exostosis (HME).Both patients had near ankylosis of their hips with pain and difficulty in performing activities of daily living. A proximal femur replacing prosthesis was implanted through(More)
INTRODUCTION This study analysed the predictors of mortality in patients who are diagnosed with deep infection following hip fracture surgery. METHODS Data were prospectively collected for 3 years from all patients undergoing hip fracture surgery and who had developed a subsequent deep infection. Infection was defined as positive microbiology culture from(More)
Oncogenic hypophosphataemic osteomalacia is a rare condition. The causative tumour is often difficult to locate. Primary tumours have been reported in the head and neck, skeleton, and soft tissue. Octreotide scanning was used in this case and detected a mesenchymal tumour in the pubic symphysis. Ostéomalacie hypophosphataemique oncogénétique est une(More)
